The Secret Garden of Kensington

On a walking tour of KensingtonI took on Thursday we were brought to the garden shown in the pictures, Kensington Roof Gardens.

Now what makes Kensington Roof gardens, a public garden hard to find and therefor not very well known is it is on the top of a building 6 floors up! Here you can see the wildlife that lives there(yes they are real flamingos).

See the steeple in the background, it is the highest free standing steeple in London. See it really is 6 floors up! Kensington Roof Gardens is an amazing place, very peaceful yet right in the middle of everything on Kensington High street, so now I have a place to go when I need a rest from shopping =)
